Have you ever read "No Parachute", Dark_Canuck?
During the "Cambrai Offensive", Camel-flyer and author Arthur Gould Lee got shot down/was forced to land
twice on one day. He almost cursed the brass for letting the Camel fly gound attacks,
and he lost a friend in the first mission.
In the thickest fog, they flew to drop their bombload.
Lee could only just evade a factory chimney that suddenly appeared in front of him.
His friend was found, when the mist cleared up.
He had run into a tree and died.
